Finding the best Texas Holdem games online can be a rewarding experience. While many of your poker opponents will be jumping onto their favorite site and sitting at the first table (at their buy-in level) with a free seat – the savvy player knows that increasing profits is as much about making the effort to find a soft game as it is the ‘card skills’ you use in the games.Read more...
Some of the pitfalls to look out for include those sites which have a high number of ‘grinders’ compared to recreational players. You will often see small stakes pros playing 8 or even more tables at once. Sure, you can exploit their ‘mechanical’ strategies, however you will make far more money by actively seeking out the fish.
It is also recommended that you seek out tables which suit your style of play, if you like to play aggressively then taking just a few minutes to find a passive table to run over can make for an extremely profitable poker session. If you have a tighter style then ensuring you have a couple of ‘wild’ opponents who are likely to pay you off when you hit a monster hand is profitable in the long term
